1. The Challenges of Moving

Moving is a complex process that involves coordinating various logistics and paperwork. One of the greatest challenges is cleaning your old residence to satisfy landlords or new buyers, especially when you’re already swamped with packing, organizing, and other moving arrangements. Similarly, arriving at a new home often requires a deep clean to remove the remnants left behind by the previous occupants.
